Top 15 RSS Feeds for Your Digital Signage Screens

Header RSS Feeds for Digital Signage Playlists

The question that arises when creating your own playlists is mostly where to obtain great content to display. Most likely as easy and cost-effective as possible. The answer is RSS feeds.

Using RSS feeds allows you to integrate any kind of news from various websites into your digital signage playlists. That way, you will be able to bring popular articles and blog posts directly onto your screens with just a few clicks. Spending a lot of time for your content management won’t be necessary anymore since RSS feeds update themselves automatically.

In this context, the presentation design can individually be adjusted by simply embedding the RSS feeds into your own custom templates.

However, you should make sure to integrate reliable and timely news feeds and not just any kind of feeds. Because if the websites – you want to use for content integration -are not being updated on a regular basis, your playlists will be obsoletely as well. Make sure to publish frequently updated information.

Here, we picked out the top 15 RSS news feeds for you to start.

These websites might not be suitable for your purposes, depending on your intended use of the RSS feeds (internal or external communication).

We, therefore, recommend the feed reader Feedly. The web application aggregates syndicated content, such as the blogs and online news you would like to add to your playlists, in one location and makes it possible for you to easily manage and organize all chosen content. That way, you can as well search for industry-specific RSS feeds and figure out which website contents suit your digital signage projects the most.

How to embed RSS feeds into your playlist?

If you clicked on one of the links that are listed above, don’t panic. A few of them might take you directly to XML files, that look like the one you see in the picture below. It’s a markup language that represents data in a clear and structured way. In other words: the content you would like to integrate into your playlist is translated into a different language and presented as an XML file.

Don’t worry! You don’t need any technical know-how in order to embed RSS feeds.

4 Simple Steps to Embed RSS Feeds

 

  1. Once you reach the website with the XML file, just copy its’ URL (the address on top of the web server).

Currently not Available

Dear Valued viewneo Customer,

Last week, our Android mobile app was blocked from the Google Play store due to non-compliance with newly adopted policies for the Google Play Developer Distribution Agreement and Privacy Policy for malware. This was largely due to the our most recent feature updates that were customer-driven and deemed very important to a professional digital signage experience.

For example:

1. “Kiosk mode” disables the ability to exit a playlist once it begins. The device owner must enter a unique key code to exit the playlist. This features was designed specifically to prevent in-store customers or non-device owner from pausing, exiting, or otherwise interrupting a playlist.

2 . The current viewneo Player App completes software updates in the background once available. Avoiding onscreen notifications and the need for users to manually confirm and complete software updates has been a very important product feature.

We apologize for any inconvenience you may be currently experiencing. Our team is working as fast as possible to urgently produce an updated version of our Android app that complies with all of the new Google Play store developer policies.

Please use the link below to access a manual installation of the viewneo Player App as well as instructions. Should you have additional questions, please feel free contact us at any time.
